Tavex Corp., Spain, recently installed a Montex 6500 tenter from A. Monforts Textilmaschinen GmbH
& Co. KG, Germany, at its facility in Tlaxcala, Mexico, to increase production capacity for
stretch denim. Sattex, Monforts’ distributor in Mexico, delivered and installed the tenter.
Adalberto Avendano, manager for dyeing and finishing at the Tlaxcala plant, said the Montex
6500 has features that make it particularly suitable for denim production and that eliminate
several traditional processing steps. The installed tenter has eight chambers and handles fabric
weights from 290 to 460 grams per square meter and widths from 170 to 180 centimeters.
